This just further evidence to me that this generation of boxing is so weak compared to earlier eras. Old George Foreman would absolutely run this heavy weight division when he was well into his 40's.

Good call Mikey!  I think Tyson vs Douglas was a bigger upset, but this is a close second for sure.  Wow!

haha!

This is why I have always though Wilder would smoke Joshua. He's simply not that good.  As Franklin says, this just illustrates how terrible this generation of HW's is. I'm surprised he got Wrecked by Ruiz though. Not to say Ruiz is a can or anything, but he's not amazing either. Basically the Butterbean of 2019. Joshua needs his head read for fighting that way...why he let himself get in to a dog fight like that is beyond comprehension. Boy, that's a bad look and hard to come back from.

Anyway, Wilder is gonna take those belts. But until that happens.....viva Mexico! Always gives me the warm fuzzies when Mexico gets a new champ. 

Joshua vs Fury please!

Also Katie Taylor didn't win that fight....horrible decision.
